Subject: The Democratic Party keeps rolling
February 01, 2013
Dear Fellow Democrats:
Although 2013 is only a month old, the Democratic Party is already back to work.
This includes electing new leaders for the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee (DCC) at the January General Meeting. Three members of the DCC Executive Board did not seek another term. We thank former Northern Vice Chair Ashleigh Evans, former Southern Vice Chair Carole Dorshkind, and former recording Secretary Craig Patterson for their years of service.
The California Democratic Party State Convention will be held April 12-14 in Sacramento this year. Over 400 volunteers are always needed to help with credentialing and registration, as ushers, general session, and much more!
At the national level, President Obama, now officially in his second term, will be forced to contend with many vexing issues including negotiating a compromise relative to the nation's debt limit, a new budget, immigration reform, reforming the nation's approach to gun ownership and promoting economic growth to name just a few. The agenda is long and challenging and the President has already reached out to Democrats throughout the nation the help in his efforts.
To get involved or to get more information on these important issues please visit the Democratic National Committee Web site.
The year ahead will be exciting and as always there remains much work to do as we prepare for the next elections and we invite all San Mateo County Democrats to participate in upcoming events and efforts to keep San Mateo County blue.
